The Joker usually has some tricks up his sleeve, but not this time.

Nikola Jokic had the worst shooting night of his career as the Denver Nuggets fell 111-102 on the road to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.

The two-time MVP and reigning Finals MVP missed a career-worst 23 shots, going 9 of 32 from the field. He went 2 of 7 from deep and made both free-throw attempts. But in typical Jokic style, he also recorded a 22-point, 15-rebound, 10-assist triple double.

It didn't matter this time, though, as Paul George's 25 points, James Harden's 20-point, 11-assist double-double and Ivica Zubac's defense proved superior. The Clippers moved to 10-10 while Denver fell to 14-8.

Here's how NBA fans on social media reacted to Jokic's rough shooting night:

Jokic will look to rectify his shooting touch on Friday when the Nuggets host the Houston Rockets.
